New gay bar in Malmö

Malmö’s latest addition to the gay scene is a breath of fresh air in a city with few LGBTQ options. Red Shoe has opened up with flying rainbow colours and whether you feel like a cocktail, some chatting or dancing or even a plate of Moules Frites this intimate new bar delivers.

New gay bars are not exactly popping up often in Malmö, so the grand opening of Red Shoe in Drottninggatan was highly anticipated and received a great deal of well-deserved attention when the doors finally opened up on in early spring.

“The opening went really well and even exceeded our expectations, and Red Shoe has gotten off to a great start. I am so happy to see and feel the positive response from our guests”, says restaurant & event manager Joe Cederholm who is also the tireless man behind Malmö’s legendary gay club WONK.

While Red Shoe has only 16 seats and a tiny private VIP area, the ideas and ambitions are everything but small and the size of the bar means an intimate setting and a very cosy and warm atmosphere.

The fresh design takes your mind to a bar in Brooklyn, New York. Clean walls of cement and a bright red glass bar along with unique artworks, great interior design, a small dancefloor and very welcoming bartenders who sure know how to shake their cocktails, are all parts of why Red Shoe looks like a success that will hopefully manage to remain and establish itself as the must-visit rainbow hangout in Malmö.

Red Shoe is open daily from Wednesday through Sunday and the address is Drottninggatan 36. More info on
